Sharks claim victory over Reds
Two tries from Stefan Ungerer gives the Sharks at least one win on their Super Rugby tour.
CAPE TOWN - The Sharks beat the Reds 14-21 at the Suncorp Stadium on Friday.
Two tries from Stefan Ungerer ensured the Durban side came back to South Africa with at least one win on their Super Rugby tour.
The scrumhalf's first try came in the 17th minute.
The Reds didn't waste much time to get points on the board.
Chris Kuridani dotted down the ball for his first Super Rugby try and took the scores to 7-10.
Sharks' Frans Steyn was flawless with the boot in the first period and maintained their lead, kicking over all four kicks.
A try early in the second half saw the Reds narrow the gap as Samu Kerevi scored his sixth try of the season to take his team to 14-16 on the 50 minute mark.
The home team started the second half better and the pressure paid off with the try.
However, a proper gaffe from James O'Connor late in the game saw him kick a clearance into Ungerer's hands rather than into touch and Ungerer then walked over the line with the ball.
More bad news for the Sharks as both Stephan Lewies and Steyn are on the injury front. Lewies has a possible dislocated knee while the Sharks fullback has a pectoral muscle injury.
